Air2Nitrous™ Benefits and Prolongs Charge-Air Cooler Usefulness

Air2Nitrous™ benefits charge-air coolers in many ways. Since engines equipped with Air2Nitrous™  are burning Nitrous Oxide (N2O), a highly enriched air/fuel mixture and not atmospheric air, the N2O passing through the turbo charger is thereby cooler than if would be by atmospheric air. Also the engine will significantly increase its intake air-charge density as a result of N2O flowing through the charge-air cooler. N2O’s denser air means even better air fuel ratio to be combusted per engine cycle, maximizing fuel efficiency and increasing your engines output tremendously. In fact, a charge-air cooler acts much like Air2Nitrous™ technology in the sense that its purpose is to cool engine air (which is what Air2Nitrous™ does by supplying N2O) thereby improving the engines volumetric efficiency through increasing intake air charge via isochoric cooling. In turn N2O facilitates the turbo chargers boosting abilities. With these added benefits Air2Nitrous™ technology’s enormous added value becomes apparent whether as a standalone device or when paired with other systems.

Charge-air coolers play a central role insuring the engines overall operation runs smoothly. Since many charge-air coolers typically fail gradually, declining efficiencies resulting from thermal fatigue failure often go unnoticed for long periods of time. Such consequences are significant if undetected for a long period, which may result in many of the following symptoms: turbo charger failure, increased fuel consumption, loss of engine power, exhaust manifold failure, elevated coolant temperatures, premature failure of valves, pistons and rings, along with elevated PM emissions.

Another significant benefit is reduced thermal fatigue risks with lowered thermal expansion of parts (such as welded tube to header joints) and significantly prolonging the charge-air coolers working life with Air2Nitrous™. This is achieved by allowing cooler air (in this case N2O) to pass through the system. N2O passing through the charge-air cooler ensures less component thermal fatigue thus considerably extending its usefulness.

Even when diesel engines are equipped with two-phase charge-air cooling systems the amount of oxygen introduced into the combustion process is more than would be the case with one or no charge-air coolers installed. However, the amount of combustible oxygen even with a two-phase charge-air cooling system in place is still significantly lower than the amount of oxygen, which is delivered when the same engine set-up is further equipped with Air2Nitrous™ technology. The reason is simple; an engine with two charge-air coolers is still only combusting atmospheric air, which is composed of 21% oxygen. Alternatively, engines equipped with Air2Nitrous™ systems are delivering 33% oxygen content (N2O) into the combustion process. This makes a huge difference increasing engine performance, simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and critical or noxious substance emissions as the engine has even more oxygen with which to combust. Hence, the reason engine manufacturers cannot afford to overlook this technology, to do so, is to their detriment.
